Amendment 2, the amendment for medical marijuana, failed to pass in Florida by 2.54 percent.

The amendment would have provided medical marijuana to those who are determined by a licensed Florida physician to have a debilitating diseases. The amendment needed 60 percent of the "yes" Florida votes to pass and only received 57.46 percent.

In Orange County, the amendment received 58.9 percent of the vote.
